Ideas for my poster

Because In my digipack I have different images of the members of the band, I thought I could have a similar style on my poster. This poster below has the style I was thinking of, what is good about it is that it shows the different band members as individuals, not so much as a group.

Another idea along the same lines is to have a few different posters, with on each one a different band member. So therefore you are again giving the band members more individuality.

Another idea is to have a group shot of the band in a setting used in the music video. If i was to do this i would like to have a shot of the band in a relaxed setting, directly relating to the fun in the music video.
This poster below is very similar to the style i would want, very relaxed and fun.

Examples of Hip-Hop posters

Looking at all the posters of hip-hop artists, they all evolve around the main singer or artist. They are also all in very intimidating poses, and are all looking directly into the camera. In some posters, like one of the ones below, they are holding a weapon, making them even more intimidating. Also most of the posters are in black and white. The black and white gives an image of coolness and also makes them look sinister.

final digipack idea

For my digipack i am going to combine different shots of the band with bubble writing and strong bold colours. On my front cover i am going to have a few of the band members sat on a bonnet of a car, on the left side of the cover. Then on the right side i am going to have the other members sat on a curb or a bench. Then above them, in jokey-style bubble writing i will have the band name. The background of this will be a bold, bright colour, furthermore representing the fun idea of the video. For the rest of the sides i am going to have a different shot of the band members in different poses. The poses will be mick takes of the poses that rappers have in magazines. This trainspotting poster is the sort of idea i want, with different images of the members.

On the back i will have the lead singer, with the information and track listing going over the top of him,  with him therefore in the background. The background of all the sides will be, like the front cover, one bold, bright colour. All the sides will be a different colour, making it have that bright and colourful look i was looking for. The one single colour look is like the dizzee rascal cover i was looking at before, and it also has the sort of bubble writing i would like my my title to be in.

I also thought that, because my writing is going to be in bubble writing, i could have a sort of speech bubble surrounding the title. I would also have the speech bubble coming from the lead singer, showing that he thought up and wrote the song.

More ideas for digipack

Because my video is a parody, it represents fun and humour. Therefore my digipack is going to have to show this fun and humour. I have therefore thought of the idea of having a sort of montage of images and pictures that show off the humour in my video. Also by having a mix of images spread around the whole of my digipack it will have a sort of crazy feel to it, which sort of represents the lead singer. Also with the images i would also want animation, to give a fun side to it and also a vast amount of different colours to add a certain brightness to the album cover.

This coldplay album shown below has the colour combination that i would like to get on my album cover. It works really well as it stands out and so would look really good on my album cover.


This dizzee rascal cover below has the animation style that i would like on my cover. The writing on it is done in a very jokey style, and that's what i want on mine.


This Dr feelgood album has the animation i would like to use to show the lead singer. The way the character is drawn is in a very funny and humorous way and that is the exact feel i want to get from my album cover.

I could even have gorillaz styled animation on my album, like the style shown below. This would certainly give the album cover a different feel to it.

Alternative artwork

Because my video is a parody of hip hop I don't want my album artwork to be like all the other hip hop covers, i want mine to be different to the rest. This brought me onto kanye wests first 3 albums. These are called the college dropout, late registration and graduation. On these album covers they have a single character that is shown on all the album covers. What makes the character different is that it is a man dressed in a bear costume as you can see below.

This brought me onto the idea of having a character on the front of my album cover, a sort of alter-ego. Because my video is going to be comical, the character i choose would have to represent fun and humour.

Another different album cover is by the Wu-Tang Clan. As you can see below they have there faces covered up. What this does is give the artists a more intimidating look, like ghosts who haunt people.


Hip hop artwork

The examples below are of a typical RnB album cover. They all have an image of the main singer in some sort of pose, and most of the time looking straight into the camera, therefore making them look intimidating, which is the image they want to put forward.

lip syncing

In my video I am going to have lip syncing in the chorus. This is the lyrics, Thank you, Thank you, thank you You're far too kind hold your applause this is your song not mines. These lyrics are going to be quite easy to lip sync and are not to fast. I am as well going to have a bit of lip syncing in the verses but only a few lines so it is not that difficult for the main singer.
